To simplify a fraction, the numerator and denominator must both be divisible by the same number (factor).

Divide the numerator and the denominator by their GCF (greatest common factor). For example, to simplify the fraction 14/49, divide the numerator and the denominator by 7 to obtain the simplified fraction 2/7.

In the simplest form of a fraction, the numerator and denominator are relatively prime or co-prime, i.e. they have no common prime factors, their GCF is 1.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials
